  • Have you gotten a taste of these yet?  We are thrilled to bring these to the market!

@vina_zorzal philosophy of minimal intervention, spontaneous fermentation, no racking, no or very minimal filtering, clarification or additives - and only sulfur in very tiny doses. “We met with Zabi from Viña Zorzal this past spring and learned that the 2018 vintage was simply stunning. It went from tank to bottle, with nothing else to do”. - Annette Peters, Owner & Portfolio Manager at Bourget Imports

Viña Zorzal’s Garnachas are stunning:
The grapes in Garnacha Blanca are from bush vines in the foothills, on the border between the Ebro Valley and Iberian mountains where a higher altitude, continental climate and stony soil result in cripspness and minerality.

The Rosado is 100% Garnacha  from Fitera is hand picked, lightly pressed, free-run method.

Reynoble Corazon Garnacha is old vine garnacha, and partially whole-cluster fermented with wild yeasts, tank made with no oak resulting in a very juicy wine.

Corral de los Altos, also 100% Garnacha is from rocky stiles on the high top of a plateau where northerly winds cool the area. 
Leciones de Vuelo “flying lessons”, is the culmination of everything Zorzal has learned: hand harvested into small crates, fermented with native yeast in 500L french oak, malolactic fermentation and aging for 12 months. Very gently clarified and filtered, without stabilization.

* Fermentation: 74% barrel fermented, 26% tank fermented, all native primary and secondary ferments, full malo.
* Harvesting in two passes—September 7 and September 20— allowed La Follette to obtain fresh, fruit-driven aromatics and then a deeper expression of minerality.
* Notes: Wet stone minerality, subtle hints of cream and white peach are balanced by a clean, bright finish. * The Pinot Noir is 100% Pinot Noir - 62% from Sonoma County & 38% Monterey County.
* Fermentation: all native primary and secondary ferments, matured in barrel, 5% new oak, Alc. 13.5%
* Harvesting in two passes in order to capture optimal ripeness.
* Notes: Aromas of wild raspberry and earthier notes of juniper berry and forest floor;warm sandalwood. Flavors of red plum and bright, fruity acidity; supple tannins frame late-palate notes of oak spice.

  • “Fanatical music people make fanatical wine people.” - Annette

When @gerald_casale , founder of the 1970’s band Devo and now proprietor of The 50 by 50 wines,
moved to California he discovered the “new wave” music explosion of the 1980s extended to the food and wine scene as well. He met cutting edge chefs such as Michael McCarty, Bruce Marder, Wolfgang Puck, Piero Selvaggio, and Jeremiah Tower, and fell in love with California’s top food-friendly wine, Pinot Noir. The fruit is sourced from Rogers creek in Sonoma Creek AVA
and made up of a 50/50 blend of Dijon/Pommard clones of Pinot Noir.
